Synopsis

A quirky and fascinating guide to Britain's railways, Bradt's Britain from the Rails is perfect not only as an entertaining armchair read but as a handy guidebook to help readers explore the country at a slower, more personal pace. This expanded and updated second edition has an attractive fresh design, clear maps and a new section on 'Britain's Secret Railways'. Full of fascinating titbits, weird accidents and odd characters, it is a thorough and humorous collection perfect for commuters and local history fans alike. With the number of 'staycations' on the rise and increased interest in lowering one's carbon footprint, this guide helps those who don't, can't or won't drive or fly. Author Benedict Le Vey is a national newspaper sub-editor who has also written Bradt's popular Eccentric titles.
